Poor thing. I know someone that sedated her kids when they had cp to stop them scratching. I'm not saying you should do this to dh of course!
It can get very nasty in adults though, both cp and measles start on the stomach, chest and back to get bac to us tomorrow. Contact NHS direct if you are concerned. Plenty of paracetamol and ibuprofen. Poor you. another one down.
Hmm, fluish plus one suspect spot does kind of suggest that tomorrow he will be crawling with spots and that it is chickenpox. A mild antihistamine is quite helpful for treating it in adults (they used to treat it with Phenergan, which is an antihistamine, in older children - I got given that when I had CP at 12). Otherwise oatmeal bath, calamine, all the stuff you are doing for your DC. It stops being horrible after about 4 days.
